TV Review: AN IDIOT ABROAD Series 2

Karl Pilkington is a very unique person. His way of seeing things seems to be on another planet altogether from the rest of humanity and it shines through beautifully in series 2.

Karl Pilkington has been cruelly talked into another series by producers Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant. Too bad for Karl but of course good for us. This time around Karl is taking on "the bucket list" and attempts life experiences that many would dream to do before they die Karl, on the other hand, moans like a little kid about every trip, especially when Ricky and Steve throw in a few tasks to annoy him. Karl Pilkington is a very unique person. His way of seeing things seems to be on another planet altogether from the rest of humanity and it shines through beautifully in series 2. From seeing whales, swimming with sharks and playing with monkeys Karl has his own unique opinions on everything he sees and moans to high hell about everything from the temperature to monkeys stealing his monster munch. Karl hates the cold, the heat, the food, the travelling, the accommodation and everything in between. Some of the highlights of the first 3 episodes of the series include Karl thinking that if you live in Alaska and go blind your not missing anything coz there€™s bugger all there. Also Karl believing monkeys should have jobs because without something to do they are bored and cause trouble. Karl also argues with over the phone with Warwick Davis about a dwarf village in China. Not your everyday comedy, but rib tickling hilarity nonetheless. An Idiot Abroad really is the cruel treatment of Karl Pilkington by Gervais and Merchant, but it is bloody funny to laugh at another man€™s misery and misfortune. It really is like keeping an animal trapped and caged whilst poking it with a stick over and over again as the animal moans and cries. At times Karl is petrified and others utterly fed up to the back teeth, but he does occasionally get to do what he wants. And he hates that too. He really does make a meal of everything. I cannot fault watching the inner workings of Karl Pilkington unfold at the four corners of our earth every Friday night. Sky One, Friday nights, 9pm. Not to be missed.
